Abstract

  A new photocatalyst bismuth oxo citrate was synthesized by facile precipitation process with calcination at 200 °C. The photocatalyst was characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, N2 sorptometry, and elemental analysis. Morphologically, it is composed of polyhedral particles with different, irregular shapes and sizes. The specific surface area (SSA) of the photocatalyst was 8.92 m2 g-1. It showed very good photocatalytic performance and reusability. Total decolorization of Reactive Blue 19 (RB19) was achieved in less than 10 minutes, which is much faster in comparison with TiO2 P25. Also, bismuth oxo citrate showed higher photocatalytic activity than other photocatalysts based on bismuth compounds reported by other authors. Optimal photocatalysis parameters were pH 2 and photocatalyst dose of 250 mg dm-3. The decolorization rate was found to decrease as initial dye concentration increased. The photocatalytic data best fitted to L-H kinetic model with pseudo-first order reaction rate. Chrastil diffusion model showed that diffusion has not influence on the process.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 26 July 2018.
All research outputs
#10,143,028
of 13,285,014 outputs
Outputs from Water Environment Research (10614303)
#243
of 740 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#184,964
of 267,991 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Water Environment Research (10614303)
#11
of 22 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,285,014 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 20th percentile – i.e., 20% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 740 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.3. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 267,991 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 25th percentile – i.e., 25% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 22 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 27th percentile – i.e., 27% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
